MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Berkeley County Sheriff W. Randy Smith wants permission from the county commission to hire 10 more deputies to get West Virginia's fastest growing county closer to its recommended staffing level of 68 law enforcement officers. Circuit Clerk Virginia Sine wants to add three people to help process papers and court matters for five Circuit Court judges and two family court judges who now preside in the county.

andrews@herald-mail.com Rising water rendered numerous area roads treacherous or impassable Thursday after more than an inch of rain fell on the area. As a result, crews in Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia responded to reports of vehicles getting stuck on waterlogged roads. A Washington County emergency dispatcher said many roads had been closed, especially along the Conococheague and Antietam creeks. As of 9:15 p.m., 22 roads still were shut down. Most clearly were marked as closed, yet some motorists still tried to drive through.

Little things mean a lot, especially when it comes to helping the environment. Individuals have the power to make a difference environmentally - and it doesn't have to be difficult, expensive or time-consuming. That's a big part of the message behind Pollution Prevention Week, which kicks off today and runs through Sunday, according to Region 9 Clean Air Connection Program Coordinator Jenni Vincent. “It's an exciting time because state environmental officials tell us that no other community in West Virginia has observed this national week before, but lots of folks in Berkeley and Jefferson counties have really gotten behind making citizens aware of this important message,” Vincent said.

More than 70 people on Sunday found themselves at a point in time when rock ’n’ roll was arriving in the United States. The performers at the time included artists like Bill Haley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly, and their influence was spread in part through appearances on television shows like “The Ed Sullivan Show” and “The Steve Allen Show.” The sound was re-created Sunday when a Berkeley Springs, W.Va.-based band known as The Flashbacks appeared at the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts on South Potomac Street.

Call it devine intervention. Electricity powering the freezers at Jules Frozen Custard stand at the edge of Apple Valley Shopping Plaza was out for eight hours after the violent June 29 wind storm, but the ice cream inside was saved from melting when it was taken to church. Doyle Collins, the stand's owner, took gallons of frozen mix and put it in the freezers at the Bunker Hill (W.Va.) Brethren in Christ Church, said Melissa Woodward, Collins' daughter-in-law, who was managing the stand Wednesday afternoon.

Elks pay tribute to law, safety officers MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Cpl. John D. Vanorsdale Jr. was working at the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department in May when he got a call about a little girl found along a road alone. It sounded like a typical lost child call. "When I got there, I find out she's been abducted, sexually assaulted and just dropped off by the side of the road," Vanorsdale said. He worked all night with the child and by morning, a suspect - a complete stranger - was in custody.
